A man was lynched on a Mathura-bound train following a heated altercation with co-passengers. Two of his cousins who were travelling along with him were also injured in the incident, police said on Friday.

Junaid and his two brothers –- Hashim and Shaqir –boarded the Mathura-bound Ghaziabad-Delhi-Mathura train as they were returning back to their home in Haryana’s Ballabhgarh after shopping for Eid in Delhi’s Sadar Bazar on Thursday, police said. However, a heated argument ensued between them and new passengers near Okhla station over seats.

As per a report in the Hindustan Times, a Delhi Police official said the victims had an argument over carrying meat with a group of co-passengers. The incident took an ugly turn when they were attacked with a knife, the official added. Refuting this report, the Government Railway Police said the dispute took place over sharing seats and not because of meat.

      It is a tragic end for Junaid and his family - no matter the reason.Lynching is totally inhuman and it surprises me as to why the co passengers did not intervene.How can lifes just be snapped out. They are lost for trivial issues and mankind has sunk to the lowest depths.And Gau Rakshaks with ample support from crass politicians indulge openly in killing.Who has given them the rights. And who cares.Tomorrow this case will be forgotten - and it all depends on the police how they deal with it.We have become a sick society. India can be easily termed as the rape capital of the world and of course corruption absolutely rampant everwhere,at all levels inspite of attempts taken by the current govt to curb it.Even dead bodies are not cremated till money is paid.Criminals are freed without any issues and reasons are very obvious. We are spending millions on memorials and god alone knows the utility - but we cannot give our citizens secure atmosphere because the police is meant to protect VIPs

        Pseudo-seculars/Leftists smell beef every where . Even if I carry beef, how should co-passengers know it unless you declare it. Again Police refuted the story .

          If he was carrying Beef just to provoke other passengers, he deserved what he got. If it was over a seat, thats tragic and inhuman...

            If he was carrying beef for consumption, then he had every right to do so. No one unarmed looks at provoking people on a train, and getting killed. Cow might be your mother but is not mine...deal with that
